This edition apparently not issued with J.L.M. Poiret's Partie élémentaire (also known as Leçons de flore) and P.J.F. Turpin's Iconographie végétale, which are works that accompanied some other editions. As Stafleu and Cowan have noted about this publication in general, "the information in the literature is complex and not always clear."
